October 7, 2013

The 2013 Smart Act was motivated by a mutual frustration of plaintiff attorneys, defense attorneys, and insurers in attempting to settle claims in which the claimant was a Medicare beneficiary. It was difficult to settle cases without knowing exactly how much Medicare was owed, the process of finding out the conditional amount was long and laborious, and the final demand wouldn¿t be issued until after CMS was provided notice of a settlement.
